August 2019 Energy Update Tarot Reading

Having not uploaded a tarot reading in a while, today seemed as good a day as any to consult the tarot for a sneak peak at the August 2019 energies.

The Manga Tarot Deck being today’s pack of choice

The Spread

I had sat down to read planning to do either 1-card for each week of August or for 1 card to represent 10 days each of the month. However, when the cards came out it didn’t feel like that sort of a reading. Instead the cards fed into each other so well that I actually read all 3 cards as one energy for the entire month as there really didn’t seem too much change.

The Reading

Overall Energies

The energy for August 2019 is of constant. Wherever you are right now it doesn’t seem like there is going to be much of a change in your situation in August. Knowing that, you might think that there’s not much you can do about it but there’s where you’d be wrong – August is a perfect time to relish in abundance which was the keyword that kept coming up. The time for changes and fresh starts feels more prosperous in September so if it’s possible to hold off any plans for doing so try to wait until then.

When The World comes out reversed it suggests roadblocks, delays, giving up and failures.  However with this card “looking” towards the 7 of Cups, a card where there can seem to be lots of options as to how you can proceed, the trick is knowing which of your options are realistic and achievable and which are just illusions and castles in the sky. It’s also a good time to ask yourself:

“Do I want this option at any cost? Am I willing to pay any price for it?”

This downbeat energy can lead to you being pulled off course by temptation or deciding not to try at all because there’s “no point” as you can’t see the progress with the 7 of Pentacles reversed. Alternatively, you might find yourself trying harder than ever because you feel like a failure in some way.

But the energy will shift again and that is the time to make progress. August is a time of considering your options carefully and getting in touch with what you have now that can make you feel abundant and enough.

Another key word that sprang to mind was satisfaction and how to feel it on the journey to where you’re headed, not once you reach your destination.

The bonus clarifying card was drawn from the Goddess Card pack. The message was:

Tap into your surroundings this month and enjoy what you can right now. If you must do something to progress at this time, instead of focusing on airy-fairy impossible dreams, focus on what you have gained or are on track for gaining. It may not be what you were expecting but this is where you’ll discover the rewards of this energy.

The gains are less likely to be material or financial in nature but more likely to be good times and memories made with our friends and family, hobbies and interests being developed and just enjoying this slower pace over the Summer Holidays before the pace picks back up at the beginning of September.

I hope that you enjoyed this tarot reading; feel free to share with others!
